About this book

Feminism Is | Gender Studies / Gay & Lesbian Studies

Jen Thorpe

“Feminism is about power, potential, passion, and rights, but it keeps changing in purpose and meaning ...”

Do you call yourself a feminist? What does this mean in your daily life? In this book, South African feminists explore their often vastly different experiences and perspectives in accessible and engaging voices. Feminism Is touches on issues as wide-ranging as motherhood, anger, sex, race, inclusions and exclusions, the noisy protest and the quiet struggle. It will challenge your thinking and inspire you to action, reaffirming the urgent necessity of feminism in South Africa today.

Sometimes painfully relatable, other times outrageously hilarious, every page is sprinkled with vulnerability - Lovelyn Nwadeyi

Fierce, incisive, compassionate and thoughtful. This is an essential collection of diverse voices. – Lauren Beukes
